THESE TIMES

In these times
When fuel prices are world best athlethes,
And inflation rules nations
Poverty lives like royalty in homes
Raising angst as beings in guises of advocacy

II
In these times
When the world chameleons into disasters
And floods turn tractors to demolish homes
Lava turns bombs to burn neighborhoods
Winds turn horrors to destroy cities
As the sun turns fire to burn beings
Devastation robots hearts to hate

III
In these times when food has its proper and damaging
Water has its contaminated and expensive potable
And air has its polluted and filtered
Sicknesses serve sins on bodies
Slaughtering servants as well masters

IV
A little slip is all it takes
To wake the monsters in the struggling
A little mistake is all it takes
To raise the pain in the sick
A little joke is all it takes
To wake the insane in the noble
These times
These here times
Oh these times are the worst of the worst
So thread in caution

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
